I wanted to try it out for myself, and a couple of YouTube videos later, I was hooked. It's easy, it's fun, and it doesn't take a lot of work before you start to see the whole thing coming together! This video taught me how to cut hexagons quickly and efficiently.
This is my first project, my learn-as-you-go project, and I started with this quintessentially English robin fabric. I chose the other 2 fabrics to complement it. Whaddaya think?
The plan is to make 5 rows in total: 3 bird and 2 orange. It'll be a cozy lap-quilt size once it's all done.
And pardon a crafter's pride, but I kinda like the back too. It's a warm, fuzzy feeling to know that I hand-stitched this! (Don't worry, I'm not crazy. I'll use the machine for the backing.)
